H From and after January 1st , 1898 , the
H subscription price of THE McCOOK TRIB
ES UNE will be $1.00 a year , if paid in ad-
H ranee. All arrearages on subscription
H will be received on the basis of a dollar a
H year. This will make a considerable
H " saving' to all those that are a number of
H years in arrears , and should stimulate
H an early settlement of all delinquent sub-
H scrlptions. It is our purpose to bring the
H subscription to a cash-in-advance basis
H as rapidly as circumstances and the times
M will warrant. THE PUBLISHER.

H The paper trust seems to have
H been revived or a new one formed.
H As usual it represents fabulous
H money on paper and it is stated
H | in this connection that an increase
H in price of paper may be expected.
H The Burlington proposes to
equip its new trains , to be put in
service , next Sunday , in the finest
I style throughout. One thing the
people of the great mid-west enjoy
is first-class railroad , service , both
in the equipment of train and in
H the speed with which they cover
H • the magnificent distances of this
H ' great domaiu. And the Burling-
B I ton in both respects is in the van
H ' I of the procession.
H All hope of any legislation on
H the money question has been rude-
H ly jarred by the recent action of
H the senate , which by a vote of 47 to
H 32 sustained the Teller-Matthews
H resolution that all bonds of the
United States are payable , princi
pal and interest , at the option of
the government , in silver dollars.
Seven Republicans stood by the
resolution : Carter of Montana ,
Chandler of , New Hampshire , War
I ren and Clark of Wyoming , Wol-
cott of Colorado , Shoup of Idaho ,
and Pritchard of North Carolina.
The lower house of congress
promptly defeated the resolution
by a majority of 50. So the im-
H portant matter rests.
A. Prentice has built a granary.
H. B. Wales has built a new hog
I house.
S. Johns is moving on to the
Nicklas farm. '

The twenty-sixth annual sessioi
of the Nebraska PresB Association
held iu Lincoln on Tuesday anc
Wednesday of last week , was ii
all material respects one of tht
most successful iu the history o
the association. The attendance
reached quite an unusual number
and the program was of substan
tial interest and excellence , while
the social and entertainment fea
tures were superb. It may be
truly stated that the meeting waf
a source of inspiration and instruc
tion to all the members of th (
press gang in attendance , and th (
pleasing and profitable results war
rant us in urging every Nebraska
newspaper man to join the asso
ciation and attend its annual ses
sions. The personal contact and
thought friction will prove of in
estimable value , and the social
functions will probably reduce au
excess of provincialism.
The annual address by President
F. M. Kimmell , of the McCook
Tribune , and the paper on "Strict
ly Business , " by Ross L. Hammond
mend , of the Fremont Tribune ,
opened the session Tuesday after
noon. In the evening the mem
bers of the association enjoyed a
complimentary theatre party at
the New Oliver , at the hands of
the Lincoln newspaper men.
Wednesday morning's session
was occupied in the delivery of a
paper on "Independent Journal
ism , " by Edgar Howard , of the
Papillion Times ; a poem by Jeff.
L. Stone , of the Minden Gazette ;
and a paper on "What I Don't
Know About Journalism , " by
Adam Breed , of the Hastings
Tribune. All were excellent ef
forts , and the following discussions
spicy. At noon the members were
the guests of the Union-Commer
cial club , at a luncheon served in
their new club house ( the late T.
M. C. A. temple ) , all of whose
conveniences and appointments
were at the use of their guests.
The session of Wednesday af
ternoon closed the business of the
meeting. W. W. Haskill , of the
Ord Quiz , read a paper on " News
paper "Gastronomy" ; Clark Per
kins , of the St. Paul Republican ,
i paper on "Beady Prints , " after
ivhich W. E. Dayton , of the York
Republican , conducted the Round
Table one of the most interesting
ieatures of the entire session.
The usual resolutions of appre-
jiatiou were unanimously passed ;
jesides a majority report express-
ng the sentiment of the State
Press Association against the pend-
ng Loud postal bill.
The election of officers resulted
is follows : President , Edgar How-
ird , of the Papillion Times ; Sec
retary-Treasurer , F. N. Merwin , of
; he Beaver City Tribune ; Corresponding
spending Secretary , W. N. Huse ,
) f the Norfolk News. Vice-Pres-
dents : First District , J. W. Barn-
lart , of the Auburn Herald ; Sec-

Thursday morning the Associa-
ion was transported to Omaha in
ipecial cars furnished by the Bur-
ington. At Omaha the members
eere shown over the Exposition
[ rounds and South Omaha by
ourtesy of G. M. Hitchcock , of
he World-Herald , and at noon en-
eyed a complimentary luncheon at
he hands of Mr. J. B. Kitchen.
? he visit to Omaha was a revela-
ion to the' newspaper men , who
onnd much to astound them in
tie magnitude of the work on the
Jxposition grounds , in the amount
ompleted and the promise for a
rand and successful exposition
verywhere evident. It can no
mger be doubted that the comi'ig
xposition will be a success beyo > d
arly expectations all available
pace is already applied for but
jat Nebraska will therefrom reap
golden harvest. People will be
ttracted to the state , its resources
ill be seen , and a large immigra-
ou will naturally result.
This excursion closed a memo-
able meeting.
The excursion committee an-
ounce an excursion to Port Ar-
lur , Texas , and New Orleans , La. ,
le cost to be from § 30 up , to go
